I have never brought up France when discussing Universal Health care. Funny how they never mention that we're trying to copy the Dutch system where they create a market for insurance companies, so insurance ends up being extremely cheap & you actually get it from the insurance companies not the government. What the government in the Netherlands pays out, is to the insurance companies. The insurance companies get paid for giving cheap insurance to those who are sick & to those who make less. The government pays the difference to the insurance. So, if you have cancer...you will get the cheapest health care. Not the other way around. From what i understand, this is the system we would most likely model after, not France. We should model after them anyway, since %100 of people in the Netherlands are satisfied w/ their coverage. AND %100 of people are covered.

The thing about the maternity ward, that is a little scary, cause what if there are complications. What if someone needs an emergency C-section like my sister and friend. That can cause a lot of deaths, if they can't get to the hospital. I just wish people would open up their eyes, wake up and smell the coffee. There are so many things that could go wrong and it seems people just don't care. They only care for themselves and what they want. They say they care about the 50 million that are un-insured, but that is just a cop-out they really only care about what they want.
